The South Hill Dixie Youth organization has closed out the regular season and is looking ahead to the all-star tournaments. Closing ceremonies were held last week on Thursday and Friday evenings, which included the announcement of this year’s winners of the J. L. Piercy Sportsmanship Award.
League President Bryan Soles said that AA Coach Pitch 7-to 8-year-old and OZone 11-to12-year-old players will participate in their district tournaments starting June 14 at Parker Park, while the 9-and 10-year-old Minor League team will head to Emporia for the district tournament beginning June 22.
In a statement, Soles voiced his appreciation for everyone who has volunteered this year.
“A big thank you to all the volunteers this spring, including the Town of South Hill, for helping to make a regal experience for our children at the park,” Soles said.
